I went in the MAC store other day to grab a concealer, but also walked out with a brow mascara in tow. Well, I was overdue for a new one anyway! I was super curious about the limited edition MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set (P1,000), part of the Waterproof Brow Collection Summer 2014, so I chose this instead of the regular one.
I originally wanted the color that's similar to Girl Boy, a golden blonde, but since most of the shades were already out of stock I went home with Quiet Brunette. Boy am I glad! It's a taupey brown shade with a reddish tint to it, just the perfect color for my dark hair. I think this is the first EVER brow mascara I've tried that doesn't require me to layer it with other colors. This is pigmented enough that I can just wear it straight from the tube, plus the color suits my hair and complexion.
The wand is now small and conical so it's easier to coat eyebrow hairs without making a mess. Staying power is excellent - I've sweated quite a bit while wearing this, but it didn't fade or smudge at all! I've yet to wear this while swimming, haha.
It's easy enough to take off with water or oil-based makeup removers, as with the regular Brow Set. ^_^
Is that nice or what? I love how my brows look full, soft, and tamed! Considering, I haven't been to a brow salon in ages. I love that the color is warm and doesn't clash with my yellow undertone.
I'm disappointed it doesn't stick to certain small spots around my brows, but I just go back again with another layer. Two layers are enough to get me these results.
The other thing I don't like though would be the fact that it's limited edition! Why do I do this to myself! I tell you, I'm tempted to stock up, but knowing how many brow products I tend to like and accumulate, I'm sure I won't be able to finish this off. Anyway, I'm positive MAC will bring it (or a similar version of it) back at some point.
Overall, I highly recommend the MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set in Quiet Brunette to dark-haired beauties with oily, sweaty eyebrows. It's long-wearing, the shade is flattering, and application is a breeze. I suggest you grab one before this limited edition collection runs out!
By the way, the Waterproof Brow Collection also features the MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcremes. You'll remember the Dirty Blonde shade was my HG for a while! Try it out too if you prefer creamy formulas for your brows. ;)
What do you think? Does this look like something you'd try?
